1. The Ginstitute at the Portobello Star

Every gin megafan should book themselves into the ‘Ginstitute’, which is based at The Portobello Star. Kick off your sesh with a history lesson from a gin guru, and find out how it’s all made, then you’ll be tasting and exploring gin botanicals. Now time to let BarChick run riot making our very own gin - which you can take home (win) - plus they keep a record of your creation so you can order it again when that one runs out. Drink, sleep, order, repeat. Find out when the sessions are happening on the Ginstitute website  Portobello Star, 171 Portobello Rd, London W11 2DY

2. The Gin Bar at Holborn Dining Room

If you need EVEN MORE choice - head to London's newest gin joint. 400 bottles of gin + 27 different tonics = 14,035 different G&T combos. Mind. Blown.

3. 214 Bermondsey

Hidden beneath a little Italian joint, is a whole lotta gin and debauchery in this candlelit gin den. It's got the cool speakeasy thing going on but without the wankyness. This place takes their gin so seriously they make their own tonic water, specifically designed to let you taste the gin front and centre. If your taste buds are super sharp, you'll fancy your chances with a gin flight. You get a tray of three numbered mini G&Ts, a red wax sealed envelope concealing the bar’s extensive tasting notes. Then you gotta guess which gin’s which. Great for date night chat. Come back on a Sunday when the gin is almost as cheap as water, almost. With £5 for doubles. Best stock load the Aspirin for Monday morning.  214 Bermondsey St, London SE1 3TJ

4. London Gin Club

Back in 1933 it was just an Italian cafe but in its current incarnation it’s all about the gin-obsessed—just check the very impressive booklet you’re given and you’ll get a pretty good idea of how into it they are. Prepare to be swamped for choice, with 250 types of gin baby! You can event select your tonic, type of ice and slice. If you’re totally overwhelmed, just spin the ‘wheel of choice’ and let fate decide. 22 Great Chapel Street, London W1F 8FR

5. The Gin Parlour at Mr Fogg’s Tavern

Sneak upstairs, away from the rowdy crowd downstairs at Mr Fogg's Tavern and hit the far more refined and chilled out gin parlour. It's reservations only but BarChick Concierge can sort that, just message us for free on 07403922903 and we'll book you in.  This secret bar is filled with enough gin to send you time travelling. It’s a more refined experience with velvet armchairs, settees and a crowd of gin connoisseurs and more serious cocktail drinkers.  If G&Ts are you thing, you need to get up here cos they’ve got about a hundred different combinations and serves. Book in on a ‘gin safari’ and get expert tuition from a gin pro, try out loads of gins and then tuck into some epic G&Ts. 58 St. Martin’s Lane, London WC2N 4EAmr.foggs.tavern.salon

6. Merchant House

The guys headed up the COLD distillery before moving on to create this perfect hangout for gin lovers. Decked out in taxidermy, old pianos and open cabinets containing rare spirits - then along with all that gin  - it’s all mega trippy. 13 Well Court, London EC4M 9DN

7. Worship Street Whistling Shop

Based on 1940’s London gin palaces, this place gets top marks for decor (there’s even a street lamp). Impress your hot date by asking us to book out the ‘Dram Shop’ which has benched seating around a bathtub (yeah random), in a little room with an honesty bar Gin Closet, it’s all pretty cool. You are left to your own devices so you’re sure to see some interesting things. The drinks are mostly made in-house, and they even have a lab. BarChick had about 6 Civility Cocktails, delicious, delicate, and dangerous as you can hardly taste the alcohol. The Panaca with all its sage dust was memorable, but since they make things fresh in house everyday, the cocktails will be forever tweaked and tested. 63 Worship Street, London, EC2A 2DU

8. Pedler

You know a bar's gonna work gin just right when the owner also owns one of London's best artisanal gin brands - Little Bird Gin.  This is the awesome gin / cocktail / brunch / coffee capital of SE London and the only place in London you can eat gin sausages. YUP. Fresh 'n dry Martinis, bitter sweet Peck'em Martinis and of course killer grapefruit garnished G&Ts are all good but those gin sausages alone are worth the uber fare to Peckham. We'll book you a table, message us for free on 07403922903 or sign up via concierge.barchick.com. 58 Peckham Rye, London SE15 4JR Pedler0003

9. Mother's Ruin

Only true gin die-hards know about this lil' beaute. A tiny understated cocktail bar in Walthamstow where they sell their own liqueurs (mainly gin). All made from home-grown and locally foraged fruit and flowers. You won't be able to stop glugging that Sloe. Unit 18, Ravenswood Industrial Estate, Shernhall St, London E17 9HQ

10. COLD BAR - City of London Distillery

Tucked down an alleyway just off Fleet Street, this is a pint sized gin distillery and relaxed cocktail bar all in one. They’ve got over 180 gins behind the bar, start with their home brand City of London Gin and don’t stop until you’ve tried them all! Have a try of their range of three gins (Dry, Sloe and Old Tom), all made in house, it’s a bit like eating fruit from the tree. Wholesome and healthy. The menu is a mix of classics and new creations, you can’t go wrong with a Tom Collins, a Martinez or hit the Aviations. Don’t leave without checking out the distillery, they do tours from 12pm or ask nicely when the bartenders aren’t too busy and you’ll get a personal tour. Birthday? Hen do? Just fancy a p*ss up in a distillery with your nearest?  Text us for free message us for free on 07403922903 and we can get you booked in with your crew to make your own gin... they’ll keep the recipe so you can keep on ordering. 22-24 Bride Lane, London EC4Y 8DT   Need more?

10 Epic Gin Bars In London

From in-house homemade tonics to mind blowing 400-strong bottle cabinets, these killer bars are must visits for gin lovers. Hot date? Night out with your badass gin mates? Message BarChick Concierge and we’ll get you booked in. Nice. Free message us 07403922903 or sign up online.

1. The Ginstitute at the Portobello Star

Every gin megafan should book themselves into the ‘Ginstitute’, which is based at The Portobello Star. Kick off your sesh with a history lesson from a gin guru, and find out how it’s all made, then you’ll be tasting and exploring gin botanicals. Now time to let BarChick run riot making our very own gin – which you can take home (win) – plus they keep a record of your creation so you can order it again when that one runs out. Drink, sleep, order, repeat.

Find out when the sessions are happening on the Ginstitute website 

Portobello Star, 171 Portobello Rd, London W11 2DY

2. The Gin Bar at Holborn Dining Room

If you need EVEN MORE choice – head to London’s newest gin joint.

400 bottles of gin + 27 different tonics = 14,035 different G&T combos. Mind. Blown.

This killer bar has just opened at Holborn Dining Room, it’s gonna be the summer hangout of champions and we are the only way you can get booked in POW. Either message us for free on 07403922903 or sign up via concierge.barchick.com.

252 High Holborn, London WC1V 7EN

3. 214 Bermondsey

Hidden beneath a little Italian joint, is a whole lotta gin and debauchery in this candlelit gin den. It’s got the cool speakeasy thing going on but without the wankyness. This place takes their gin so seriously they make their own tonic water, specifically designed to let you taste the gin front and centre. If your taste buds are super sharp, you’ll fancy your chances with a gin flight. You get a tray of three numbered mini G&Ts, a red wax sealed envelope concealing the bar’s extensive tasting notes. Then you gotta guess which gin’s which. Great for date night chat.

Come back on a Sunday when the gin is almost as cheap as water, almost. With £5 for doubles. Best stock load the Aspirin for Monday morning. 

214 Bermondsey St, London SE1 3TJ

4. London Gin Club

Back in 1933 it was just an Italian cafe but in its current incarnation it’s all about the gin-obsessed—just check the very impressive booklet you’re given and you’ll get a pretty good idea of how into it they are. Prepare to be swamped for choice, with 250 types of gin baby! You can event select your tonic, type of ice and slice. If you’re totally overwhelmed, just spin the ‘wheel of choice’ and let fate decide.

22 Great Chapel Street, London W1F 8FR

5. The Gin Parlour at Mr Fogg’s Tavern

Sneak upstairs, away from the rowdy crowd downstairs at Mr Fogg’s Tavern and hit the far more refined and chilled out gin parlour. It’s reservations only but BarChick Concierge can sort that, just message us for free on 07403922903 and we’ll book you in.  This secret bar is filled with enough gin to send you time travelling. It’s a more refined experience with velvet armchairs, settees and a crowd of gin connoisseurs and more serious cocktail drinkers.  If G&Ts are you thing, you need to get up here cos they’ve got about a hundred different combinations and serves. Book in on a ‘gin safari’ and get expert tuition from a gin pro, try out loads of gins and then tuck into some epic G&Ts.

58 St. Martin’s Lane, London WC2N 4EAmr.foggs.tavern.salon

6. Merchant House

The guys headed up the COLD distillery before moving on to create this perfect hangout for gin lovers. Decked out in taxidermy, old pianos and open cabinets containing rare spirits – then along with all that gin  – it’s all mega trippy.

13 Well Court, London EC4M 9DN

7. Worship Street Whistling Shop

Based on 1940’s London gin palaces, this place gets top marks for decor (there’s even a street lamp). Impress your hot date by asking us to book out the ‘Dram Shop’ which has benched seating around a bathtub (yeah random), in a little room with an honesty bar Gin Closet, it’s all pretty cool. You are left to your own devices so you’re sure to see some interesting things. The drinks are mostly made in-house, and they even have a lab. BarChick had about 6 Civility Cocktails, delicious, delicate, and dangerous as you can hardly taste the alcohol. The Panaca with all its sage dust was memorable, but since they make things fresh in house everyday, the cocktails will be forever tweaked and tested.

63 Worship Street, London, EC2A 2DU

8. Pedler

You know a bar’s gonna work gin just right when the owner also owns one of London’s best artisanal gin brands – Little Bird Gin.  This is the awesome gin / cocktail / brunch / coffee capital of SE London and the only place in London you can eat gin sausages. YUP. Fresh ‘n dry Martinis, bitter sweet Peck’em Martinis and of course killer grapefruit garnished G&Ts are all good but those gin sausages alone are worth the uber fare to Peckham. We’ll book you a table, message us for free on 07403922903 or sign up via concierge.barchick.com.

58 Peckham Rye, London SE15 4JR

9. Mother’s Ruin

Only true gin die-hards know about this lil’ beaute. A tiny understated cocktail bar in Walthamstow where they sell their own liqueurs (mainly gin). All made from home-grown and locally foraged fruit and flowers. You won’t be able to stop glugging that Sloe.

Unit 18, Ravenswood Industrial Estate, Shernhall St, London E17 9HQ

10. COLD BAR – City of London Distillery

Tucked down an alleyway just off Fleet Street, this is a pint sized gin distillery and relaxed cocktail bar all in one. They’ve got over 180 gins behind the bar, start with their home brand City of London Gin and don’t stop until you’ve tried them all! Have a try of their range of three gins (Dry, Sloe and Old Tom), all made in house, it’s a bit like eating fruit from the tree. Wholesome and healthy. The menu is a mix of classics and new creations, you can’t go wrong with a Tom Collins, a Martinez or hit the Aviations.

Don’t leave without checking out the distillery, they do tours from 12pm or ask nicely when the bartenders aren’t too busy and you’ll get a personal tour. Birthday? Hen do? Just fancy a p*ss up in a distillery with your nearest?  Text us for free message us for free on 07403922903 and we can get you booked in with your crew to make your own gin… they’ll keep the recipe so you can keep on ordering.
